Panasonic Adds Netflix To Viera Cast HDTVs, Blu-ray Players

Panasonic has finally added Netflix, that most enjoyable and effective of time wasters, to Viera Cast-enabled HDTVs and Blu-ray disc players in the US. It joins Skype, Twitter, Pandora and the other usual suspects. Fortunately (or unfortunately, if you have a lot of stuff to get done), a boatload of new movies from Paramount, MGM and Lionsgate just went live in Netflix's streaming section last week. [Panasonic]
